Manchester City travel to the Amex Stadium to take on Brighton & Hove Albion for the final fixture of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign, searching for all three points that would see them clinch back-to-back league titles.
Even though the hosts have struggled to secure a PL triumph since early March, they still managed to preserve their top-flight status, as they come into this meeting after failing to win in eight consecutive PL outings (D3, L5). Frustratingly for their fans, the Seagulls have struggled to find the net in all five of those defeats, conceding over 1.5 match goals three times in the process. However, Chris Hughton’s men are unbeaten in their last two PL games (D2) with both of those draws ending with the same 1-1 scoreline. Far more comfortable at home, Brighton have returned 63.89% of their total PL points at this venue (23 of 36) although they’ve lost three of their last four PL home clashes (D1, L3).
Meanwhile, the visitors’ run of strong form has seen them rack up an impressive 13-game PL winning streak, as they currently top the PL table with a one-point lead over second-placed Liverpool. Notably, 10 of those victories have been accompanied by a clean sheet while three of their last four PL wins have ended with the same 1-0 scoreline. Furthermore, the Citizens have allowed just one goal on their previous six PL road trips, winning a maximum of 18 points in that period. Also, with 34 goals scored away from home, the reigning holders can boast PL’s joint-best attacking record having netted over 1.5 match goals in ten of 18 PL away encounters this term.
